Handbags and Purses
Born in 1984 with its debut store opening in the Piazza, an old fruit and vegetable market in Covent Garden, London. It acquired the spot next to Monsoon, which had a small area of accessories but was always selling out. The idea of a standalone accessory concept was born. It was a move inspired by Peter Simon’s trip to Les Halles, Paris. While he was wandering around the area, he discovered a small selection of stores selling fashion jewellery that customers could pick up, touch and try on while browsing – a relatively unseen concept in London in the early eighties. From the very beginning, Accessorize was an Aladdin’s cave of artfully arranged displays, tables and stands, so customers could interact with products in a brand new way. Having made its mark as a one-stop shop for vibrant and fashion-forward accessories across all categories, the first Accessorize was quickly followed by stores in London’s Carnaby Street, Norwich and Manchester. Since then, it has built on its home-grown success with around 900 stores worldwide.

French ready-to-wear brand, founded in 1987 by the Tunisian fashion designer Jean Touitou in Paris. The brand is known for its minimalist designs, its clothing features clean lines and simple patterns. Logos are rarely visible, as well. Its clothing tends to incorporate the characteristics of military garments.One of the brand's most popular products is its raw-denim selvage jeans thought of by Adam Shantir. Their jeans are popular among denim enthusiasts, as they are Japanese selvage denim but are also, unlike the products of many companies who use denim of this quality, slim cut and fashionable. The denim also fades quickly when used, allowing denim enthusiasts to achieve a lot of wear and fading quite quickly if they wish. The fit of APC clothing derives from Touitou's distaste for the loose-fitting clothes of his contemporaries.
